This DIY bubble candle kit I created comes with nearly everything you need measured out & ready to create. This bubble candle kit comes with premeasured wax, colored wax measured out, bubble candle recipe card, bubble candle silicone mold, wicks & more! 

How to make Bubble Candles on the stove

  1. Poke a hole in the middle of the bubble mold with a skewer or needle & then thread the candlewick through. Use skewers to keep wick in place, set on a small plate or in a wide cup (a small plate will make the top ever so slightly flat, the cup makes the most perfect bubbles if you can find one that won’t squish the sides)
  2. Fill your pouring pot with 5.5 oz of your wax
  3. Fill a saucepan with approx 2″ of water & on medium heat bring to a low boil with your pouring pot sitting in the water and stirring occasionally. 
  4. Once the wax is completely liquid, take off the heat and add in your fragrance (.25 oz of your chosen scent). 
  5. Carefully pour your wax into the bubble candle mold & let fully cure before removing it from the mold (I like giving it a full 24 hrs)
  6. Remove carefully from mold, start by pulling the sides from the mold & then roll down
  7. Trim your wick as needed & BOOM you’ve got an amazing aesthetic candle! 

How to make Bubble Candles in the microwave

  1. Poke a hole in the middle of the bubble mold with a skewer or needle & then thread the candlewick through. Use skewers to keep wick in place, set on a small plate or in a wide cup (a small plate will make the top ever so slightly flat, the cup makes the most perfect bubbles if you can find one that won’t squish the sides)
  2. Fill your microwave-safe bowl or cup (I like using a pyrex measuring cup with a spout) with 5.5 oz of your wax
  3. Microwave in 30-second intervals until completely melted. 
  4. Once the wax is completely liquid, add in your fragrance (.25 oz of your chosen scent). 
  5. Carefully pour your wax into the bubble candle mold & let fully cure before removing it from the mold (I like giving it a full 24 hrs)
